We had another great day of banding today! Overall numbers were similiar to yesterday but species diveristy was up. We ended up banding 44 new birds with 12 recaptures of 16 species. Prairie Warblers continue to make up a majority of the catch but we had a few surprises too! Scroll all the down to see a list of everything we captured.

We also captured our first YELLOW WARBLER of the season. This bird just would not cooperate for a photo.
